ELMHURST, Ill. (WLS) -- A woman was killed and another person hurt in a multi-vehicle pileup Saturday morning in Elmhurst, according to the DuPage County Sheriff's Office.

It happened around 7:03 a.m. westbound on Roosevelt Road near the I-294 interchange.

The crash involved four vehicles and an out-of-service ambulance.

As a result, police said the Roosevelt Rd. exit remained closed on I-294 for several hours.

A cause is still under investigation but witnesses said the roadway may have been covered in black ice due to the quick burst of snow in the early morning.
